Clark County Humane Society is very proud to announce a new life-saving program! Clark County Humane
Society has a new initiative to create a healthier environment for Central Wisconsin's feral cats. Feral
cats are cats that are most likely never going to be house pets. They just don’t like to be handled
or to hang out with people. However, they are still fantastic cats in their own right, and need a chance
to live out their lives in an environment where they are comfortable and happy.
Central Wisconsin Feral
Friends is a new program sponsored by Clark County Humane Society to achieve exactly that! CCHS is seeking
locations (primarily rural property owners) that are willing to provide just three things for these feral cats:
SHELTER, FOOD and WATER.
CCHS will ensure that these cats are spayed/neutered, blood-tested,
vaccinated for Distemper, Rabies and Feline Leukemia, treated for fleas and dewormed.
There is no fee to adopt.
It is that simple to have a (free!) healthy barn cat, and to save a life in the process.
Please visit http://cwferalfriends.wordpress.com/ to learn more about the program and its benefits to everyone! Spread the word! If you can help, sign up
to shelter feral cats. If you'd like to participate by donating funds (not cats!), get in touch with the contacts below.
Together, we can make our world a healthier and happier place!

STRAY DOG INITIATIVE AT CCHS
Many dogs come in to CCHS as strays, having wandered off and lost their way home. Unfortunately,
only a few are returned back to their owners each month. At CCHS, we really want to have more happy reunions!
To that end, we are working with some new ideas to help owners find their lost pets!
have started posting pictures of any lost pets that come to CCHS on our Facebook page. You can just click here to go to www.facebook.com/petshelter to see pictures of the most recent strays. We will be posting these pictures within 24 hours of the dogs' arrival
at CCHS. There is also a photo album of all the stray dogs that have come to CCHS since April, 2011. That can be seen
by clicking here.
We are also working with WCCN/Central Wisconsin Broadcasting to share information
about lost pets. They air "Pet Patrol" each weekday at 11:30 a.m. on station 1370 AM with information about
lost pets. They are also showing the photos of the stray dogs on their website and have added a link back to us on their
site. We truly appreciate their help!
Please contact CCHS right away if you've
lost a pet. Even if it hasn't come to CCHS yet, having your information on file will enable us to get your pet back
to you more quickly if it should come to the Shelter. You may call the Shelter, email us, or post information on our
Facebook page. We hope to return many more lost pets back to their owners!
Or Cheaper by the Dozen....
Anyway you put it, we all know that two kitties are better than one! CCHS is happy to announce the return of our "2
for 1" Cat Sale! If you are looking to adopt two cats or kittens, the adoption fee is waived on the second cat.
Plus, if not already altered, you'll be able to have the second cat spayed or neutered through our Fixapet program at
no cost to you. It's an amazing deal! The two cats or kittens are required to live in the same home, and the
reduced adoption fees are non-refundable. Please stop in at CCHS to meet all of our cats and kittens. There's
never been a better time to add some new furry friends to your life!!

We thank those Forward Financial Bank customers who have already selected
CCHS as their preferred charity of their CMMA. And we certainly thank Forward Financial Bank for offering this wonderful

We really enjoy some of the pet commercials we watch on TV, and we'd like to share two of them with you!
Pedigree has a wonderful ad about their Shelter program which features many actual Shelter dogs. We commend them for
supporting the work of Shelters everywhere. And in case you were wondering, all of the dogs shown in the ad have been
adopted to new homes! PetSmart has a wonderful ad featuring "BoBo", one of our favorite toys. You can't help but
smile watching that one!
To view the ads, you must have Realplayer installed on your computer.
Then just click on the picture below, and enjoy!

|PetSmart "BoBo" Ad
ASPCA Ad featuring Sarah McLachlan
We absolutely love this ad. It is very powerful and almost brings us to tears each time we view it. The pets in the ad
are real and so are their injuries. We want you all to know that the ad is produced by the ASPCA (the organization that brings
us Animal Cops). We feel that they are a wonderful organization, worthy of your support. But, we also want you to know that
the Clark County Humane Society deals with the very same sad cases. We have also experienced the tragic things that can happen
Our canine and feline residents here at the Shelter often include those with amputations, eyes missing, broken legs and
spirits, etc. Some of the injuries are from accidents and others are caused by uncaring "humans". Whatever the cause, it's
not the animals fault and we have always done our very best to help them in any way we can.
We ask that when you view this ad, you look at the animals eyes, think about the pain they must have been in to endure
the injury and afflictions they have. Then think about how right here at the Clark County Humane Society you can help. Help
us to care for those who need us most, the ones with no home, no family, no one to help them. That's what we do here. We take
sad stories with likely tragic endings and turn them into happy futures with new loving families.
Come over to tour our Shelter during open hours and we'll be glad to show you the work being done here. You may be
so moved that you wish to join the team of kind and caring volunteers. So, please, by all means, send a contribution
to the ASPCA, but also remember the Clark County Humane Society right here in central Wisconsin too.

Do you spend time on the Web searching for information? Now you can help CCHS while you're doing it! We've
partnered with "GoodSearch" as a great new fundraiser to support our work with the animals!
This is a new and easy way to raise money for CCHS just by searching the Internet with GoodSearch.com. It's
simple. You use GoodSearch.com like any other search engine — the site is powered by Yahoo! — but each time you
do, money is generated for CCHS. Each search will raise $0.01 for our cause. That may not seem like much, but
if we have 100 supporters searching the web two times a day using GoodSearch, it will raise $730 for CCHS. And that's
a lot of money to us!!
Last year, search engines generated close to $6 billion in revenue from advertisers. With GoodSearch part of this advertising
revenue will now be directed to our work. We hope that not only will you use GoodSearch as your main search engine from
here on out, but will also pass this message on to your friends and family. The more people who use this, the more money will
go to help us.
Just click on the GoodSearch link above or below, and give it a try! You can even add it to your toolbar as your
preferred Search Engine. Instructions can be found on the GoodSearch website. Be sure to specify Clark County
Humane Society as your charity of choice. We think this is a great new way to raise money to help our cats and dogs.
Please try it out, and let us know what you think!!
This is BK, the mascot for CCHS! BK has been a wonderful addition to our staff, and everyone who meets him falls
in love with him. This is one of our favorite pictures, showing BK wearing his favorite Hawaiian shirt. BK has
taken over as "King" of CCHS, and he is a wonderful representative for the work that we do. Soon after BK was abandoned
at our door, we realized that he had a life-threatening medical problem. Through the generosity of our many supporters,
we were able to help BK through his surgery. He is now doing a great job greeting everyone that comes to visit
the Shelter. Please click on his picture to read more details about BK's success story!
